This historic home is a fantastic space filled with sunlight and the kind of charm that you can only gain from over 148 years in existence. It is located in a building that we own and is directly above our boutique retail store. The center city location (almost everything is walkable) is perfect for travelers, so we renovated it into a guest house!

Boendet
This is a one bedroom city apartment that used to be part of a victorian era merchant's home. We did the renovation work by ourselves, by hand, with care paid to the historic nature of the building, and we are thrilled with the results. The original pumpkin pine floors are soaking in character, wide plank base boards, solid wood doors, original art deco light fixtures, all the good reminders of a different time; they meet up with modern comfort HVAC, polished concrete counter tops, and lighting that you can actually read in.

About 860sq Ft, this is a really wonderful space, somehow spacious and cozy at the same time.
-- The interior decor leans on mid century modern with some victorian accents. Our amazing south-facing windows let in an abundance of sunlight all day long, which is perfect for our variety of live plants.
—There is a work desk set up in a cozy corner which is perfect for your laptop.
—The gorgeous bay window area is a nice spot for reading.
— There is a queen sized bed with plenty of pillows and blankets, and several sets of sheets.
— The galley kitchen is stocked with enough essentials to prepare a meal from those special ingredients you find at central market, and coffee and tea making supplies will be on hand. There is also a local grocery store next door.
— The bathroom is freshly tiled and features a shower/tub combo. Towels are provided.

We have put a lot of effort into making this space special, and preserving what was already special about it. The 3rd and 4th floors of the building are separated and still under renovation (there will not be noisy construction activities while guests are present). This building is a labor of love, a project that we are tackling by ourselves, so while the rest of it may not be as pretty, the BnB space is absolutely lovely.


STAIRS: This is a second floor walk up. It may not be appropriate for people with mobility issues.
PARKING: We do have a free parking spot reserved for this listing. It's location is around the back of our property, and is effectively about a block from the front door. You have to walk around the block. There are metered street parking spots immediately in front of the front door - free on Saturday and Sunday on our block.
LAUNDRY: There is a laundry mat across the street. It has mixed reviews, but it’s there.
HISTORY - Starting in 1871 this was the home of the Frey family, who were tobacco merchants that ran a full scale tobacco processing and distribution operation from the property. In 1913 the property was purchased by the Beittel family, German immigrants, who ran a hardware and general store out of the ground floor store front. Interestingly, it was known for the birds and goldfish that were sold here. The Beittel family owned it until 2007. We bought this place in 2017.

Gästers tillgång
You have access to the entire 2nd floor of a single family victorian merchants home, which feels and functions exactly like an apartment.
There are no other guests or residents in the building other than the retail below that has a separate entrance.

Andra saker att notera
While Lancaster is a charming small city, it is still a city, and has all the trappings that come with it, including homeless people and the other fallouts of poverty. This is not a dangerous block, we don't experience violent crime or even theft, but we want to be clear about what you might see here. I want to say that it's not that bad, because it isn't, but that perception is relative to what you might be used to. 
We ask that our guests are kind to our neighbors, but do not give out money if asked.
Also, again, we are in the city, and city people can be very noisy. We aren't next to a subway train, or a night club, but we are in the city. It's not bad at all if you are used to city noise, but it does catch some people off guard. NOTHING this close to the city center is "suburbs quiet", even the top floors of the Marriott get city noise complaints. Again, it's really not bad, and the bedroom is on the quieter side of the apartment.

With current fears of coronavirus, Air BNB is a safer option for travelers as we don't have the density of traffic a hotel does. To maximize safety, we are taking extra precautions with our cleaning; using properly tested disinfectants, making sure to properly sanitize all door knobs and other surfaces that might normally be overlooked in addition to normal cleaning. We also use an ozone generator in the bedroom to sanitize the mattress and random decorative pillows that we can't wash otherwise.

We're not saying we believe in ghosts, but as best as we can tell, this historic building is not haunted. To be honest, it's almost disappointing how un-spooky it can be. We'll call it a good thing, even though it's a boring feature.

Lancaster, Pennsylvania, USA

We are in Downtown Lancaster City proper, just under two blocks from the central Market, and three blocks from the Convention Center. Within three blocks there are no less than 5 breakfast spots, 4 or 5 coffee shops, at least 6 lunch spots, every price point you could want for dinner, 8 or so bars, art galleries, retail shopping.... you get the picture, we are just on the edge of the action.
We are across the street from a modern McDonalds with a drive through, they kind of mess up the vibe of our historic city view. We do not recommend going to this particular McDonalds, ever.

We live close by, about a mile away. We own and operate the retail boutique on the ground floor of the building, so we are around if you need us. Evan works on some kind of project in the upper floors almost every day, but you probably won't run into him unless you want to.
